Welfare implications of Calvo vs. Rotemberg-pricing assumptions

  • Lombardo, Giovanni
  • Vestin, David

This paper compares the welfare implications of two widely used pricing assumptions in the New-Keynesian literature: Calvo-pricing vs. Rotemberg-pricing. We show that despite the strong similarities between the two assumptions to a first order of approximation, in general they might entail different welfare costs at higher order of approximation.
